Goleta Skatepark is a 5,000 square-foot outdoor concrete skatepark in Goleta, California that first opened in 2019. The skatepark maximizes the smaller 5,000 square feet of space by creating a well-designed skatepark layout that mixes some transitional features with a respectable street plaza.

The Goleta Skatepark is located in the smaller community of Goleta, California, a town on the California coast nestled between Naples and Santa Barbara, California. Goleta is about a two-hour drive from LA.
At one end of the skatepark, there is a quarter pipe that stretches the entire top edge of the park. After you drop in from the quarterpipe, you can hang to the left and hit the funbox and ledge combination, hit the middle of the park where can choose from two different ledges and a handrail, or stick to the right where you have a manual pad kicker combination.
After you cruise through the street plaza, you flow into the far side of the skatepark that contains a half mini bowl/bank combo with a large deck and a tombstone extension. One cool feature is a wave-shaped feature that ends in a small jump ramp – something the designer, Spohn Ranch has incorporated in other parks.
The Goleta Skatepark is open from dawn until dusk, year-round, seven days a week for skaters and bikers of any age. Technically, under California law, all users of the park need to wear helmets, elbow pads, and knee pads at all times, although the rules on pads are unlikely to be enforced – which is the case at many public skateparks.
The larger Wallis Park, which is home to the Goleta Skatepark, offers recreational opportunities for the entire family for a weekend afternoon picnic and day of leisure.
The skaters in the family can enjoy the skatepark while other family members can take full advantage of the handball, pickleball, and bocce ball courts, the walking and bike paths, a ping-pong table, various pieces of exercise equipment, picnic tables, grills, a playground, and a soccer field.
Another perk of the Goleta Skatepark is its location. The park is centrally located and easy to access by foot from many of the surrounding neighborhoods.
Additionally, there are numerous restaurants nearby as well as a well-equipped skate shop within a few blocks of the skatepark. The close proximity of the skate shop can help skaters with minor repairs, help them make upgrades to their wheels, bearings, trucks, or other board accessories, or give them a place to buy a whole new deck setup.
